      MP: $7.30 - VPIP: 83, PFR: 50, 3B: 0, AF: 4.5, Hands: 18

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is SB with Q :heart: Q :spade:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 1 fold, MP calls $0.35

      Flop: ($0.95) 8 :spade: 7 :heart: T :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.15) 2 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, MP calls $1.10

      River: ($4.35) 3 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $2.80, Hero calls $2.80

      River...eem. I rarely believe in backdoor flushes, often people just bluff on them, rather than have them. I think he might have a busted OESD/GS here, maybe JJ or a fishy played AT.

      He puts me all-in on the river, btw.

      Also, is it a tell? Say, my stack is $2.80 and his is $4.40. So instead of just going all-in, he makes it $2.80, specially for me :) Like kinda "don't freak out, it's only $2.80". Does it mean that he value bets me...or I'm over thinking it?

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine but could definitely be bigger OOP vs this fish.

      Postflop: Considering the connected board we should simply bet bigger on flop, turn and ship river.

      Simple value poker vs what appears to be a big station :)

      As played he can still bet worse and even some missed draws like gutshots so we have to at least call give the odds/play.

      On the turn I was kinda considering SPR, a big bet would be close to a shove.

      I've just became too scared of all these fishes limping/calling with monsters, or stuff like that :s_mad:

      What do you think about the tell I mentioned? (I added it a bit later, you might have missed it)

      TY

      Since we have no history of that "tell" we can't make much of it.

      He could of just seen your stack and bet enough to cover you.
